SUMMIT, NJ - The Connection for Women and Families has announced its 2015 Annual Giving Campaign. Members and friends are asked to support the Community Service and Scholarship Fund, which enables children, adults, and seniors to participate in educational, recreational, fitness and social service programs, regardless of their economic circumstance.

The Connection for Women and Families is a non-profit organization that prides itself on being a community staple through its variety of programs that meet the needs of different constituencies and age groups. The Connection strives to be a place where everyone can participate and feel welcome.

“Every day at The Connection countless individuals participate in programs and services which improve the quality of their lives. A child with special needs learning to swim, play basketball or spending time socializing with her peers. A newcomer to our country improving his English to become more self-sufficient and engaged in our community. A woman recovering from cancer receiving the resources and support she needs in her journey toward healing,” said Associate Executive Director, Jayne Graepel.

Graepel added, “When you support The Connection’s Community Service and Scholarship Fund, you help us ensure that deserving children and adults have the chance to participate here. Together we work with friends like you to make certain that everyone, regardless of age, ability or economic circumstance can participate and feel welcome here. We are asking for your help so that we can continue to provide vital services to those in our community who are often overlooked.”

By making a donation to The Community Service and Scholarship Fund, donors can support a number of programs and individuals who are often not reached by other organizations. Donations help give: 220 children a safe, nurturing environment in the After School Enrichment Program; 200 children and adults with special needs a place to learn skills, make friends, and gain a sense of belonging in social and recreational programs; and 80 ESL students from 20 countries around the world language skills, support services and self-sufficiency.

Donations also help 500 women with breast and gynecological cancer receive support, education, and wellness services through Pathways, and 550 individuals with financial needs receive over $270,000 in scholarship assistance to participate in programs at The Connection.

Contributions are tax-deductible, and provides direct and critical support for these vital community services in the community. To find out more about The Annual Giving Campaign or the financial assistance program, visit TheConnectionOnline.org.
